Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teens in the United States. In 2014, a total of 2,450 teens and young adults aged 15–19 years died in motor vehicle crashes, and approximately 288,000 were treated in emergency departments or hospitalized for injuries (1). In the last decade, motor vehicle crash deaths and injuries among teens decreased significantly (1); however, projections for 2015 data indicate a 10% increase in fatalities among persons aged 15–20 years (2).
